The Free Land of Proximia is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 294 million Proximians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.5%.

The very strong Proximian economy, worth 18.4 trillion Paxis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 62,696 Paxis, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 205,607 per year while the poor average 14,348, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

The reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, the government is spending millions to provide full health care for all citizens, machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, and blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Proximia's national animal is the Aroura, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Proximia is ranked 11,801st in the world and 741st in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 7,801.27 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
